I do a  lecture entitled "Lost Babes. Child apprentices, those "branded" in 
records, orphans train riders & others." Here are several references  you 
be interested in. The subject has many, many more  references.

England (Philadelphia: University Press, 2001).

carted away unwed  mothers  (2005).
